My least favourite reads of 2019

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog.

It’s that time again lads and ladies. It’s the end of another long year which means it’s time to talk all about my highly rated and most hated reads of the year.

As you can tell I’m starting off with my least favourite reads of the year, the baddest of the bunch. I figured it was best to get the negative energy out of the way first. These posts are like mini therapy sessions for me. Book therapy. Its a whole post dedicated to bitching on books I didn’t like and was deeply disappointed by. Lets begin:

The Magicians by Lev Grossman

Listen. Listen! It’s been months since I read this, back in July/August time, and I’m9780399576645_p0_v4_s550x406 still so pissed about this book. At the time I was obsessed with the TV show and I thought “hey, I’m going to love the book”. How wrong I was.

The pacing was off and all over the place, there’s a complete overuse of the words: “breasts” and “bossoms” and Quinten, the main character whose perspective we’re reading from, is a grade A arsehole which is the same in the show but at least in the show you grow to care about him. In the book he was an obtuse dickhead and I was waiting for him to die.

Also while reading this season 5 finale of the show had just come out and let’s just say I’m done with this franchise.

Did I complete my summer TBR??

Hi and hello and welcome to my blog 🙂

So today was my second day of school, I’ve come home with homework, a headache and that oh so familiar feeling of dread with my brain saying “u stoopid” so I can officially say that the summer holidays are over.

I can also officially say that college sucks and I want to go back to nursery and live out my finger painting dreams. Can someone make that happen please?

Basically in my last week of school back in June I made myself a TBR to read during my three months off and we’re gonna take a look to see if I actually stuck to that. I genuinely don’t remember so I gotta admit I’m nervous to see how bad I’ve failed.

June Wrap Up

Hey. Hi. Hello! Welcome to my blog and happy July!

Like wow isn’t that crazy? I’m planning on reading a whole lot this July and taking full advantage of my time off but before I get ahead of myself I’m going to be talking about the 11 books I read this month.

Yeah I finished a whole 11 books this month. I don’t exactly know how since June was a month filled with exams but I’m not complaining.

  • Superior by Jessica Lack– I kicked off pride month with a super cute short story following a superhero’s intern and a supervillains apprentice. It was absolutely adorable and a great fast read that helped me relax through exam stress I just really wish it had been longer. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Silver Mask by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare- This is book number 4 in the Magisterium trilogy and although I enjoy this series when reading I am finding that it’s a pretty average read unfortunately. Only 1 book to go though. ⭐⭐⭐
  • History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera I’m really sad to say that me and this book just did not mesh. On one hand I love the representation and the fact that these characters do have faults and aren’t perfect but really I just didn’t connect with this book which left me really disappointed especially since this book is so hyped. ⭐⭐

🎅Christmas Book Haul!🎅

Christmas is about many things: family, being woken up at the ass crack of dawn by younger sibling, stuffing yourself with more food then you’ve eaten all year, and gifts and for any book lover that usually means books!

I was super lucky this year and the big fat man left a whole bunch of books I’m really looking forward to reading!

(Wow look at my terrible photography rearing it’s head once again!)
